South County High School wide receiver Dillon Spalding recently narrowed his list of offers down to just two schools. Coming out of Lorton, Virginia, Spalding made his announcement on Twitter Wednesday night that he will make his final decision between Michigan and West Virginia.
When we asked Spalding about including West Virginia in his final two and about potentially playing in the Big XII, he replied, “It’s a great school. [They] have great football and I love their offense. They throw the ball a ton and I feel like that’s the best way to use me. I’m excited for the opportunity.”
Spalding shared that while he was on visits at both schools, they felt like home and that he felt good while at both programs. What matters the most to him is feeling at home when he chooses the school and where he will continue his academic and athletic career.
On film, it’s hard not to notice his quickness and his ability to get to the ball. Not only will he beat a defense with his speed, but can get up over the defender to catch the 50-50 ball. Spalding is physical in the passing game and when blocking for his teammates. He could play both X and Y at the collegiate level.
And when asked about a player that sticks out to him from West Virginia, “David Sills, of course.”
His dream is to one day make it to the NFL and with his final two choices, he couldn’t have picked two better programs.
